Fate


I pulled this dress out of a storage bin in my garage last week.  I'm typically pretty good at eye-balling a garment for size, but vintage often trips me up.  When I brought this home from the thrift store a couple years ago,  it didn't fit.  With the intention of selling it online, I brought it in and decided to try it on again for the heck of it.  Turns out, it fits great now. 


It would also turn out, that I'd be attending RetroRama on Thursday night that called for a special, vintage ensemble.  Was it fate?  I think so.  More about RetroRama later [when I can figure out why my picture quality is so low all of a sudden.  Grrr, Blogger....]. 


Dress:  Vintage, thrifted via Valu Thrift
Pearls:  Philippines, gift from hubby
Purse:  Vintage, thrifted
Shoes:  Vintage, thrifted via Goodwill
